scumbags!

Really?

You little shitheads think it's funny to break into people's property at 2:30am to steal stuff? It's a freaking farm in the middle of nowhere, get a life!!

So yeah, we got woken up at 2:30am last night by frenzied barking (and I had earplugs!) - Maika was going crazy - she never barks in the night and certainly not so savagely. Vegas went downstairs to see what was going on and I stayed upstairs, ran to the front of the house and looked out the guest room window to see three young guys in hoodies with backpacks hoofing it out of our driveway :-o

I wasn't sure what was going on until this morning -  I found a lock stolen from our small chicken coop as well as one gone from a side garage door.

Seriously, dudes? You steal door locks? From a chicken coop?

I don't know where those bastards went nor what else they stole, we think Maika scared them away before they got their hands on anything costly.

Thank goodness for big mean-sounding watchdogs :-/

Now we have to buy working locks for both coops, it's frightening to think that anyone can (and will) come on our property in the dead of night to mess around - what if they had tossed some of our chickens out in the dark, just for fun?? We cannot lock the garage nor the barn though, so now I'm a nervous wreck.

I worry for my babies :(

Took us ages to fall back asleep last night, I'm angry and pissed off - we left the city because of this shit, you know? And now we can't even feel safe in our bunker in the middle of nowhere?

We should train a few skunks to patrol our property at night - you come here uninvited, you get sprayed!!

Sigh.

Why are people so disrespectful?

Just came over from Tales from the CoopKeeper... sorry you got robbed. It's a sad thing when you can't even be safe on a farm. You definately need to report it though so they can have a record of break ins. Dogs are a great deterrent, but those lights that are motion sensitive that come on will prevent people or even raccoons from having the safety of darkness to protect them. My Dad used to snare thin wire line around the chicken house to keep out varmits. Hope they don't come back.

Oh TD, I don't know what some people feel the need to do bad things....bored kids? drug addicts looking for something to sell?? Who knows.
Just glad your flock and YOU are all good. Give those dogs an extra cookie.

Oh no, I am so sorry you guys had to go through that last night. Thank goodness for the pups and their loud barking.
I'm glad you are all ok!

oh my! so glad you, family (including brave Maika, & the Chicks) are all okay. How frightful!
just goes to show you, it really doesnt matter who what where, we all must keep our guard up because as sad as it is, there are a lot of meanies, idiots, drugies & selfish people out there trying to get whatever they can for nothing.
take care~ and again, sorry for your drama but so glad you are all safe.

i think you should install motion light detectors. they come on if anything moves in that space.

Wow. They really must have had nothing better to do. We were recently at a friends house sitting on their front porch. It had just gotten dark and their dog started barking. The guy went in his house and got his gun. Apparently, they had people coming through the woods and vandalizing their vehicles with a BB gun. Some people are just mindless when it comes to the things they do. At least you have a great guard dog that will alert you to trespassers.

Wow - that is so not cool. Glad no one was hurt and nothing valuable taken. Locks? Really? Girl - I hope they never return and so glad your dogs were able to bark them away...Gotta love your furry protectors...
